A newly typeset reproduction of the Latin Martyrologium Romanum, as in the last typical edition, editio quarta post typicam (1956).
The changes detailed in the 1961 CDF decree Variationes in Martyrologio Romano are fully integrated. As such, this edition is the first and only that integrates exactly with the calendar and office of Prime of the 1961 Breviarium Romanum.
As a practical edition, the extensive indices and historical tracts are omitted, but an appendix is added which briefly lists (in calendar order) the names of the 600+ saints which have been formally canonized since 1960.
